Facts about Seymour
Seymour is a city in Jackson County, Indiana, United States. The population was 17,503 at the 2010 census. Seymour is referred to as the "Crossroads of America" due to the north/south and east/west railroads intersecting downtown.
The north/south line (the Jeffersonville, Madison and Indianapolis Railroad) was built in the 1840s and connected Indianapolis to the Ohio River at Jeffersonville. In 1852, Capt. Meedy Shields persuaded John Seymour into building the east/west railroad (the Ohio and Mississippi Railroad) through his land. In return, Shields named the area Seymour.
Seymour was laid out and platted in 1852.
Seymour was the site of the world's first train robbery, in which the train was moving. It was committed by the local Reno Gang, on October 6, 1866 just east of town. The gang was put into prison for the robbery, and later lynched at Hangman's Crossing outside town.
The Freeman Field Mutiny occurred in 1945, in which African-American members of the 477th Bombardment Group attempted to integrate an all-white officers' club at Freeman Army Air Corps Base. The mutiny later led to the integration of the United States military.
